point ceases to be in the interests of the german government. germany gets a third of its oil and gas from russia and some of germany's best-known companies, volkswagen for one, have huge stakes in russia. so any type of sanction has a potential economic blowback and it's just a sign of how the west has a limited toolbox in dealing with the situation in ukraine, chris. >> all right, joe, thank you very much for the reporting. >>> let's bring in cnn military analyst james "spider" marks a retired major generally and former commanding general of the u.s. army intillgence center. general, thank you for joining us. let's leave the politics aside and deal with the urgency on the ground. what do you believe the situation is? who is ukraine fighting? what do you think the stakes are? >> fighting two elements really. you do have pro-russian separatists that are in east ukraine, but they're being supported directly, not only in terms of what i would call over-the-horizon support, weapons support, but also they have russian forces are on the ground instigating this and these are the folks we've
that killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. general lovell was in germany awaiting orders to strike at the terrorists, orders that never came. >> what we did know quite early on is that this was a hostile action. this was no demonstration gone terribly awry. to the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. the afri-con j 2 was focused on attribution. the attacks became attributable very soon after the event. >> so that means the u.s. military, the cia on the ground in libya, and pretty much everyone else directly involved with the benghazi attack knew it was not a spontaneous demonstration within hours. yet, as we proved yesterday, the obama administration created a fiction that the attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim videotape. the cover was blown off that deception this week when a memo by white house advisor ben rhodes was released through the freedom of information act. the memo clearly says that ambassador susan rice was prepped to tell the world on television that a videotape incited the murders in benghazi. incredibly,
, spain, and germany. and if we didn 't, we should have. and one take aways from this, is we need to eva evaluate our abiy to respond to a crisis anywhere in the world on short notice. a lot of people say this is about sticking it to the white house, or hillary clinton. no this is investigation, also serves to make sure that men and women who serve in our dip that diplomatic corps is feel seiche, like they have washington d.c. behind home, when they are out and hostile territory risking their lives for american interests. lou: congressman and congresswoman thank you so much. >> thank you, lou. >> absolutely. lou: time for a look at last night's on-line poll results. would you be more or less likely to vote for a former president's family memr. 87% said no. remember national average in most recent polling was 70% saying no this audience voted 87%. 13% of you said, well why not. i guess. at least you said yes. vote tonight, as we sort of try tto narrow in on this, do you believe jeb bush and hillary clinton will face each other in the presidential general election in 2 2016? cast your vote

the results from his post in germany testified before the house oversight committee and he said there should have been a military response. no one thought a video had anything to do with the attack. the attack that left four americans did including ambassador chris stevens. >> benghazi in 2012, this is the most serious of the themes. there are many sayings in the military. one saying that rings most true, you fight the way you train and in benghazi we did. many with first-hand knowledge have recounted heroism displayed bit brave americans in benghazi that night. they fought the way they trained. that's in the record. outside of libya there were discussions that churned on what we should do. these elements also fought the way they were trained. specifically the predisposition inneragency influence had the military structure in the spirit of expeditionary government support waiting for a request for assistance from the state department. there are counts of time, space and capability, discussions of the question, could we have gotten there in time to make a difference? well the discussion is no
: the general was in stuttgart, germany on the night of the attack. what he was able to see in realtime was the message traffic from libya to washington. we expect them to testify there was nothing that message traffic about a protest and nothing about the video. let's listen to congressman jason chaffetz who gave as you present violate yesterday. >> they took a country in libya and turned it into a failed state. one of the people that will be in that room is somebody who is in charge of a lot of the intelligence that they were gleaning in libya. we are going to talk about libya, where it's going, how it's become that failed state. >> reporter: if he testifies he saw nothing in the message traffic about a protest or video that will be significant. as part of our ongoing reporting at fox news we referred to a report september 17, our sources on the ground in libya also said there was no protest and fox received considerable pushback for that reporting. bill: i see darrell is a gaveling the hearing to an opening. let's rinse as this hearing begins. >> ... successes and failures of u.s. in
laughable. today we're going to hear from a general, air force general who was there in germany as this was going down in the room. we're going to hear from him, what was happening in that room? were the facts as we knew them? and the white house just can't keep saying we were dealing with the best intelligence we had. oh, yeah? what was that intelligence? what did the military think was going down? >> so we had talking points ahod mike morell said i had no idea where that word tape came from. but you also have him dealing with offering a his services to help work something outs with the state department. that's also in these documents. >> he said that he was worried it would be embarrassing to the state department. that doesn't sound like somebody who is trying to get out the truth about what's going on in benghazi. you would the station chief himself say it had nothing to do with a video and that that led to some sort of mob that got out of control. >> one thing, you guys got to help gregory hicks 'cause his career is all screwed up because believe. but today, you're going to
a lot of energy, germany, angela merkel one of her big problems is that her country really likes the energy coming out of russia. >> that's true. it's up to the united states and the west. we have plenty of energy resources. all we have to do is start using them intelligently. and reduce the dependency of western europe on russian gas. >> see, i see it as even a larger issue in that, you know, while all the focus is on ukraine and what he is doing there is that last year when president obama drew the red line with syria and that back fired and he sort of outsourced and ling the chemical weapons in syria to putin, putin then was supposedly going to help us. now we hear that there is chlorine gas used about a month ago against civilians. it sounds like either we are foolish or there has been some double dealing or whatever. i see that sort of inroads in syria and a bigger problem for israel and sort of expanding in the region. that's what i see is even a larger issue. >> it's even bigger thansrki that in my view. the problem is you you know you can -- if you go back through frankl
